From Sweden

Beethoven in Stalingrad. Christmas 1942.

The war has twisted boys into men. Twelve true stories explore the deepest existential questions – survival, faith, love – here intertwined with a live deconstruction of music by Beethoven.

Scottish violinist Ian Peaston unravels and remixes the Appassionata in distorted electronic strands that mirror the narratives of real soldiers’ letters from Stalingrad, adapted and performed by Swedish actor Jesper Arin.

‘Flawless and unique musical experience!’ ***** (ThreeWeeks) for Peaston’s essens:1.

‘A masterclass in the art of storytelling’ ***** (

***** (ThreeWeeks), for Arin’s monologue Evil.
